Grammy-winning rapper Eminem is out here with the big co-signs. The rap legend has stepped up to show huge love to Def Jam icon Redman with a massive co-sign.
Eminem Co-Signs Redman’s New Music
Slim Shady went to his Twitter page for a rare message. Without giving much context, Marshall Mathers showed his support for Reggie Noble’s recently released “80 Barz” single.
““it goes Reggie…””
Just in time for 4/20 a.k.a. Smoke Day, Redman came through with his “80 Barz” music video.
Fat Joe Sums Up Everything
This week, rap heavyweight Fat Joe went online with a must-see vintage Redman pic. In the shot, he’s posted up alongside Red and Method Man – which both performed an unforgettable VERZUZ Tuesday night – and the late Black Rob who died last weekend.
“This week in Hip Hop 🙏🏽❤️”
Redman + Method Man Deliver Epic VERZUZ
Following mounted anticipation, both Red and Mef came through big with a concert-style Tuesday night of performances packed with special guests, collaborations and solo flexing. With help from DJ Scratch, Reggie dug into his bag of classics with “How to Roll a Blunt” while Meth delivered on songs like “Shadowboxing” and “Shame on a N*gga.”
Even after skating through their solo records with fervor, Red and Meth didn’t have a problem performing lyrical gymnastics on their collaborative records such as “Diz Is For My Smokers” and “Y.O.U.” After Method Man breezed through his verse with vigor on the latter, Redman matched his lyrical agility, proving why their chemistry remains stellar 20-plus years after the song’s release.

The duo also took time to acknowledge the guilty verdict of George Floyd killer and former cop Derek Chauvin.
And while they reveled in telling jokes to the virtual crowd, the pair took a moment to chime in on today’s verdict. After Meth yelled out “Guilty,” Red issued a resounding message to Chauvin: “You get what you put out there. He deserved every f–king bit.” Midway through their performance, they surprised viewers by bringing out Keith Murray, who dished out his 4/20 friendly hit “Get Lifted.” Later, Meth introduced his Wu-Tang brethren Inspectah Deck and RZA for the earsplitting gem “Wu-Tang Ain’t Nuthin to F– With.” (Billboard)
Redman + Method Man Promise More Than Just A VERZUZ
Earlier in the week, Redman shared a video on Instagram of himself in the studio with Method Man and DJ Scratch, getting ready for Tuesday’s VERZUZ. The Funk Doc hinted that in addition to the head-to-head element, we’ll get some collabs … or maybe even some new music together?
“Y’all gonna get more than a VERZUZ. Y’all gonna get Red and Meth in full effect!”
